...and said asked "What the hell are you guys talking about in the break room?". I said "Yeah, we're just talking about pvp in the warzones, no biggy". He gave me the whole "What the hell is that?" look.

Apparently some chick from accounting (who share the floor with us) overheard us, and went to my boss with it. She evidently said something to the effect of "I'm really kind of worried...I don't know what they were talking about, but it sounded REALLY BAD..."

And it got me to thinking...see, a buddy and I at work queue up regularly together for WZs, and then chat about it the next day at work, usually in the break room while getting coffee. People we don't usually work with come and go from there all the time...I can only imagine what must go on in their heads. They've got to be thinking "Is that even English?"

Think about some of the mundane things you'd say to someone else who knows the game...

1. "Yeah, guard rocks. Like last night when that Op jumped you at left turret, I swapped guard to you and taunted the hell out of him and we just roflstomped him while laughing about it."

2. "Dude, did you know that an AE that nicks the tank will completely disregard his taunt on you?"

3. "And then this chick runs up spamming lightning. I force waved her off the platform, dropped her with a spinning kick then circle strafed her, interrupting her when needed...just burned her down. Was great!"

Overhearing *any* of those conversations, people would think you are completely insane.

When you said she thought it sounded REALLY BAD, it was because of how horrible the pvp sounded in swtor
I HATE YOU

Next time mutter something about assassinating Obama, and make sure she overhears.

Sounds like a lovely lady that I would avoid like the plague. "People are talking about stuff I don't understand (probably not a new sensation for her), I must go tell the boss!"

I hate people...

Yep.

I was walking into work one day way back when, and a guy who I'd seen but never talked to was standing outside talking to someone on the phone.

I overheard a few things like "Novice Brawler" and "TK", and made the connection that he was obviously an SWG player.

I kind of discretely hung around til he was done, then asked him what server he was on. Turned out it wasn't mine.

In the end, that guy ended up being our CFO, and became a good friend of mine. He re-rolled on my server for SWG, went with me to WoW, and we've had a great friendship that's lasted even though we don't work in the same city anymore, much less for the same company.

I still ask him questions about finance stuff, and he comes to me for an engineering take on ideas like perpetual motion machines, battery operated cars, etc. (Kind of fancies himself as a closet inventor. )

On that note, I was in ilum last night and the message came across my screen:

"Imperial Agent George'w'bush was seen in Central Assault" Or whatever the full ilum message is.

I am a jedi shadow (but close enough to assassin) and killed him.

On the other hand, if all she heard was various remarks about killing people and r.aping people I'm not surprised she'd be concerned.
